Other Hints For Greener Living:

  • Instead of wrapping gifts in glossy, nonrecyclable paper, cloak them in reusable items such as canvas bags, scarves, or drawstring pouches.

  • Don’t just toss your Christmas tree on the curb after the holidays. Many cities have Christmas tree recycling programs that turn trees into mulch or wood chips.


    Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

    Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
